interior design

With Ryan in Halifax, I’ve taken over our studio apartment with my dried flowers, feathers, fabric, etc but i’m rapidly running out of space!  I’m always daydreaming of beautiful work spaces and offices (older post), maybe one day we will have enough space to create a functional and stylish home office and studio! Image from various pinterests.


Ryan’s first feature on! Check it out!! Great work Ry!


A friend of mine from school who’s been busy photographing in Toronto asked if I would be interested in contributing to Houzz. I’m always interested in new learning opportunities so I jumped on this! This is my first post on Houzz and I know I have a lot to learn, but I’m very excited!

Anyways, please stop by and have a look! I’m always interested in some constructive criticism too, please don’t hesitate.

I can’t show you all the details of our decorating project, as it will be a private residence, but here are some shots of the condo that I helped Michelle decorate in its entirety in under 2 weeks!  My photos I took at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and all around BC are hanging in the condo (super stoked)!  Michelle and I shopped in Vancouver, West Vancouver, North Vancouver, Richmond, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Burnaby and Surrey (next time we will hit Langley, Fort Langley and Port Moody I’m sure ;)) and had a blast!  Thanks to everyone who helped out on the project and to Michelle who made it all happen!  Can’t wait for the next project!

video source: solidstatethe on youtube. screenshots from the trailer, images 1 & 4.Mysterious and a little strange, the trailer for “Sleeping Beauty” makes me want to see more of this classic fairytale with a dark, modern angle!  I’m really drawn to movies that have a unique or strong sense of style, whether it is in interior design or fashion, and “Sleeping Beauty” appears to have an understated elegance demonstrated in the use of lush fabrics, costumes and ornate interior decor!

When I first saw the trailer, all I could think of was “Lanvin, Halston, Bill Blass” – draped grecian dresses and tailored luxurious classics styled with stunning statement jewelry!  I put together a little board of pieces inspired by the trailer!

1. Clothing & Accessories – Bill Blass Backless Cashmere Set, Lanvin Belted Wrap Dress, Halston Off-the-shoulder jersey gown, Marni Swarovski crystal-embellished and horn drop earrings.

2. Furniture – Howell Leather WingbackJack Club Chair.

3. Nymphenburg Mocha Cup Demitasse Cup, Jamali Garden bronze urns, Royale Vase, Wedgwood Golden Bird Teacup, Wedgwood Anthemion Blue Teapot.
